What is your favorite book?

Here at, we’re big readers. We love reading, and we love learning about new books!

As RVers, we have a lot of time to read. We listen to audiobooks as we drive, we read under our cozy blankets as the rain pitter-patters on the roof at night, and boy, reading with ever-changing beautiful views from our camp chairs… what could be better?

Do you have an all-time favorite book (or two or three?) We’d like to know! Please fill out the form below (include a photo or link of/to the book if you can!) or tell us about the book in the comments. We’re excited to add some new ones to our lists and we’ll share your favorites with other readers later on.

Thanks, and happy reading!

My favorite book is Loving Frank by Nancy Horan. It is a novel based on a real life long term relationship between Frank Lloyd Wright and a society lady from Oak Park, IL. It was a very controversial love story at the time (early 19th century). The author is able to immerse the reader in the characters’ emotions and in the culture of the era.

“In search of ancient North America” got me started visiting the indian ruins and Indian museums. Lot’s to learn not in history books.

As a kid in the 70’s, I was fascinated by books on ghosts, WW2 and the Titanic. In the 80’s I discovered Clive Cussler, and devoured his books like ‘Raise The Titanic’, ‘Vixen 03’ and ‘Night Probe’. When I joined the Navy, I began reading more Civil War, WW1 and labor movement history books along the works of Tom Clancy (Red Storm Rising is still my favorite) and Dale Brown. Since the 2000’s, I’ve been reading as much of the Star Trek ‘Litverse’ novels (currently reading the ‘Coda’ Series, but the ‘Destiny’ series by David Mack is a MUST READ) and in the last few years, I’ve been reading Taylor Anderson’s ‘Destroyermen’ and his new ‘Artillerymen’ series.

I am a former military trauma nurse, herb gardener, and student of Scottish Gaelic for 5 years, so I’ve enjoyed Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. There’s lots of Gaelic for me to translate, herbal remedies and descriptions of my Hamilton and Campbell ancestral lands.

I’ve gotten hooked on the Outlander series on cable tv. I haven’t read the books, but the series is riveting. I’m anxiously awaiting the next season.

I don’t read books, I read magazines of interest or that are sent to me by an organization I belong to such as Owner Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA), Highways (Good Sam), Shooting(NRA) etc.

I read to escape for a short time. Not looking to particularly learn anything. Not looking for a book that makes me think. lol I just want to enjoy it and forget about it once done. Mostly these are mystery fiction or thriller. Sometimes Danielle Steele but only if I can’t fiind something else. Easy reading, easy on the head.

Not a masterpiece or cerebral work, but it has changed many lives.

Definitely ours, maybe yours…?

James Michener, “The Source” is an epic read. Ken Follet’s Cathedral series. We RV for 6-8 weeks at a time; I like the big fat books that last the whole trip!

I have some favorites that I go back to occasionally. Audiobooks are great for traveling. So I have both hard copies and audio versions.

A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson is always entertaining. For audio, make sure to get the unabridged version – narrated by Rob McQuay.

Isaac’s Storm by Erik Larson narrated by Edward Hermann. About the 1900 Galveston hurricane – historically accurate and very detailed. Incredible story.

Those are two favorites. I have many others!!

Besides my interest in RVing, travel, drag racing, Ham Radio and others, I am an amateur history buff gathering data on the Chronology of New York Central Freight Cars. And I’ll wager that no one has even heard of less seen the books I work with to gather this data. To others like myself (very very few) those books are known as ORER’s, OFFICIAL RAILWAY EQUIPMENT REGISTER’s. I have my own private collection to work with and to me it is fantastic reading. But I do not expect any others to get involved or even google what these book are all about.

On the other hand Sandy reads from at least 3 books at the same time putting one down to pick up another. They are mystery, fiction, biographical, any thing except sci-fi. Longmire is probably her favorite series. With books you are never to old to learn. Stay safe, Stay well.

David Weber’s Honor Harrington series, J.D. Robb’s Eve Dallas series, Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series — good enough to have read through them all more than once.

I enjoy westerns but my favorite author is Louis L’Amour and I have read and reread all his books. I began reading his books while stationed overseas.

I find my favorite books change with time as do the authors I read. The only thing consistent is how many books a year you read or listen to.

I’m currently reading Threads West, An American Saga series which consists of 5 books. They are enjoyable to read and well written by Reid Lance Rosenthal.
